to the division of power from obama in the white house, democrats in control of the senate, republicans of the house, but appearances can be deceiving, and in this case are. the most important reality of the election is that the republican effort to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama, almost like a parliamentary party was not rewarded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was rewarded. calling the obama health care plan which was there room only a few years earlier socialism was not rewarded. that means, they have to begin to rethink themselves. importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in the opposition. i think that was an important change that creates a
